Nashville recording artist Dierks Bentley will release “Up on the Ridge,” a raw, true-to-his-roots bluegrass album on June 8.
Bentley co-wrote five of the tracks, and enlists the help of singers Alison Krauss, Tim O’Brien and Kris Kirstofferson to supplement the album.
Listeners can get a sneak peak by visiting USMagazine.com, which is currently streaming track “Love Grows Wild.”
As for the album itself? “This album won’t come as a surprise to my hardcore fans,” Bentley told USMagazine.com. “They’ve asked me: ‘When are you going to make a bluegrass record?’ And I was just waiting for the right time.”
